Good Old John Muir…

I spotted (OK, my wife spotted) a great John Muir quote in a magazine the other day, and I thought I would share it here; Mr. Muir’s wisdom so often strikes a chord with me, I can’t imagine others won’t appreciate hearing his words as well. But when I went to the web to cross-reference the quote and make sure I had it correct, I stumbled across one I liked even more. Here’s the OG mountain man dropping truths about mountains:

“Who wouldn’t be a mountaineer? Up here all the world’s prizes seem nothing.”

Truth, pure and simple. Those of you who bag summits are nodding.

A Pithy Quote All Writers (and All People) Need

I came across this quote from the author Michael Lewis (The Big Short, Moneyball,¬†and a few other notable nonfiction books) that got me right in the guts. He’s right on, and most of us are guilty as charged. Heed this one, people:

“People waste years of their lives not being willing to waste hours of their lives.”

Damn. That’s the truth.
